VIDEO: Pussy Riot attacked in Sochi

Pussy Riot clearly weren’t put off protesting in Sochi, despite being detained yesterday by police. This afternoon, they attempted to stage a political protest but were violently set upon by Cossack guards patrolling the city.

In the video from Sky News above, you can see members of Pussy Riot – including Nadezhda Tolokonnikova and Maria Alyokhina, in the beginnings of staging “Putin Will Teach us To Love the Homeland”, their new protest song.
